Am I getting old?Keskiviikko 21.12.2005 13:17

I remember when as a kid, Christmas was something that you'd wait for the whole year, or at least half a year, the other half you would wait for your birthday :)

Now there's three nights till Christmas and I still haven't got any sort of Christmas feeling, anxiety at most. Still haven't bought any of the few christmas presents I'm going to give, probably 'cause I don't have any money until paycheck comes on friday. It's going to be fuckin' hilarious to try to get all the presents bought in four hours, 'cause this week I have the evening shift from 14 to 22. Well, I don't think that there's going to be so many people in the city on the eve of Christmas eve.. (yeah, right).

Well anyway back to the subject, I don't know is it the commerciality or what that has taken away my christmas spirit. I just don't think that it's very reasonable to start selling and advertising christmas in the middle of June. Then after Christmas the sales begin and continue until June. It's a vicious circle. This is starting to sound a little hypocrite, but people have, including me also, forgot the meaning of christmas. Whether the true meaning is the pagan feast or the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

The last paragraph was so hypocrite that I want to puke.

The point, before going hypocrite, was that when I was a kid, the Christmases were full of joy (probably 'cause of the presents), staying up so late that you wanted (a big thing to a 7-year old) and holiday from school. Nowadays it's full of stress and asphyxiation from all the commercials of wonderful new toys that will eat, drink and go to take a dump for you.
Merry Christmas indeed.

It was quite odd to wake up before eight this morning. Can't remember when was the last time I've been up on a sunday morning before 10 o'clock.

1,5h work left, then some sleep.. It's been quite a long week, I've been working for 64 hours and been to school for about 40 hours. Luckily friday was the last lecture day before Christmas break.

Remember to cut the grass.

Sleeping is overrated.

Last week of school before Christmas break. Luckily. Almost all that I've done during this past two weeks is work,school,schoolworks and a hell of a little sleep.

Atm also at work and tomorrow will have school from 8 to 17. So there's no reason to go sleep after work 'cause there would be only 2 hours of time, and because I'm having my bathroom renovated at the moment, I'm living at my parents. There's about 30km to their house, so the drive there and back to school would last one hour.

I'm glad though that the renovation is moving along quite fast and with some luck I'll be able to move back home during next week.

Work and you will hopefully get your prize in the end.

Forgot to mention that helped two little youngsters to push their car out of a ditch tonight. They couldn't been more than 19years old and were driving a... surprise, surprise.. Ford Sierra from the early '90's.. They shouldn't give cars with rear-wheel drive to those kind of idiots..

the driver was a fucking moron, he wondered how the car ended in the ditch, after all he had driven very carefully.. yeah, right. (The car was in the ditch about 15 meters from a intersection and the road was covered with ice and on top of the ice there was 5cm of snow.. and accordind to the quite neat marks on the road just after the intersection the car was drifting pretty nicely.. very careful and skillful driving indeed.) Well, at least I got myself in a good mood. :)
